Sweaty palms? Racing heart? Shaky knees?
Need to deliver a professional presentation? Maybe a Eulogy? Even a toast? The anxiety of anticipation is in a great many of us. Named Glossophobia (FYI?). You’re probably a successful professional who has worked hard to get to where you are today. Public speaking is only a small part of your overall success.
Tips: Here’s how to go it on your own:
Join a club; .toastmasters.org, DaleCarnegie.com. Learn to engage an audience
Practice like it’s the real thing; in front of a mirror or a friend
Breathe, stretch, and let it go In the “green room”

Avoid Equating Public Speaking to Your Self-Worth. None of us are perfect. Avoid Being Nervous About Your Nervousness. Your audience can’t see it.

Need support and mentoring from a fellow professional?
This is where Counseling on Demand comes in. You need not go through your stress alone. With our support, you can get through these times. Our counselors can be your sounding board- whatever your needs.
So you see, we can help. We offer Privacy, timeliness, convenience, flexibility and effectiveness:
Privacy You needn’t leave your favorite/private place- a room at home/apartment, workplace, out of state- even out of country. Finally, no one needs to know your personal business.
Timeliness You need not wait for an appointment. We are always here. You can begin in 24 hours or less. And you can begin immediately to talk with one of us about what you are facing now.
Convenience If you want a face-to-face, we can Skype you on your computer, cell phone or tablet right away.
Flexibility We can work around your schedule- even if it changes without notice.
Effectiveness Studies have shown that on line counseling has been more effective than face-to-face office visits; for example, we offer between session emails and texts for your questions, worries, thoughts, etc. to help you “cement” what was done in session as well to help you track yourself until we “meet” again.
You may contact us now. Your first consultation is free.
We await your call, email or text directly.
